A traditional wedding always holds a special place in our hearts. Not only does it contain profound meaning, it also leaves us totally charmed. The wedding of Elok and Kemal is no different. Their Javanese and Palembangese heritage were combined to create a stunning traditional wedding which was nothing like one another, yet complements each other perfectly.
Starting off the day was an all-white Javanese wedding ceremony. The couple wore pristine white traditional attires as they were pronounced man and wife. Elok's beauty beamed ever so effortlessly, wholeheartedly glad to become Kemal's wife. "They are not the romantic kind of couple, but I can feel their chemistry and synergy, the excitement, and the nervous joy," said the photographer from Lights Journal. The view from the venue only helped to liven up the atmosphere of this beautiful and serene ceremony. "The vast golf course view and Javanese tradition created an understated harmony," said the photographer again.
Their reception took a different turn. The couple was dressed in vibrant red Palembang traditional attires, creating a luxurious and glamorous look. The bride also danced at the start of the reception, making the whole celebration feel a lot more authentic. "I truly love the idea of mixing tradition, nature and a modern touch. To capture such intimacy between two families becoming one is always mesmerizing for me. The tears, joy and even all kinds of awkwardness in every smile reveal the wedding's unique and one-of-a-kind moments," reminisce the photographer.
